Hey you guys. Sure you noticed I’m New, just wanted to show my plane score.
It was in an old thrift shop with a capewell bench plane next to it. The rust hid these poor beings under the dust. I had to rescue them both up. I managed to get them with a slew of random other items for $30. You see, the only planes I have are a grocery store Stanley block plane, and a slightly larger wooden plane I made because I wanted one.
Not to keep you waiting, here are some photos from this project

That really cleaned up nice.
You know that this is an addiction, right?
There are many of us here that suffer from it too.

What a wonderful transformation! I wish I could catch the bug to get started restoring the old ones I have!
